Why is it that I cannot resist jumping into a box, any box, no matter what the size. I feel obsessed with anything box. Is this normal? Should I seek professional help?
Dear Binky, Your obsession with boxes is absolutely cat-normal. We all do. I love a good box. A box makes me feel safe and is comfy and cozy. A good box gives me a great vantage point from which to jump out at my brother or sister cats, and even at those pesky dogs (if I wasn’t afraid Sofie would eat me). In a deep box, no one can crawl up behind me. As you can see in this video, boxes are a natural part of being feline. Just relax and enjoy your obsession. Your friend, Noel
I cannot imagine a life without cats!
The primary color of my wardrobe is black. My second color is navy and then dark gray. Are you seeing a pattern here? Well Mr. Nine, who has always liked the hanging clothes closet as a sleeping spot (it is actually two 6-foot closets running along one wall with sliding mirror doors), has taken to pulling stuff down off the hangers and making himself a bed on the shelf. Oh my! Sometimes, at 5 am when I am getting dressed for work, he jumps out at me and we both get scared. Lint rollers don’t even work anymore. Long ago I realized he can slide the doors open on his own and go inside. No keeping him out. I have my black suits and dresses hidden in a closet under the stairs that the cats can’t get into (unless of course, they run in when I am getting dressed and get trapped all day, which has happened). Cat and dog hair is my life.
